The Chinati potty is a 2 minute walk.  WASHER pit recently installed. There is a 125 gallon tank of non-potable water in the common area near the Chinati potty.  Feel free to use this water for showers and general camp use.  I would not drink it due to the fact that algae growth is seen periodically in the tank. 

You have access to the Big Kahuna SHOWER by staying at this site.

Star Party at Rio Bravo offered a perfectly rugged, minimalist Hipcamp--- excellent for a night under the stars.

Take your high-clearance, 4x4 vehicle and enjoy the natural beauty! Star Party is quiet, secluded, and peaceful. Immersed within desert flora, and flanked by weather-worn geographical features, Star Party is great place to kick back with your closest friends, and enjoy a memorable night around the fire. Far enough off the beaten path to feel private, but not so
remote as to seem inconvenient, this Hipcamp would be ideal if you’re looking to book a star-studded stay near the quaint town of Presidio. Oh, and if you happen to be a rock-hound, this place will put a huge grin on your face. There is an abundance of unique and beautiful rock
samples scattered all over the property.

My husband and I had so much fun scouring the grounds for interesting finds! Thank you for sharing your delightful, desert Hipcamp with us! We greatly enjoyed it!

We brought our Overland Trailer to Rio Bravo and it was perfectly set up for the type of camping we like to do. The setting is pristine and location is great for those who want to daytrip into Big Bend Ranch State Park.

We've been camping for nearly two decades, and THIS was the best site ever, and turned out to be the best little camping trip ever for us two humans & three dogs.
Rio Bravo 2 has it all: The scenery is stunning: mountain views in the distance, miles and miles of cool desert scenery and big big skies above. Stars, sunrises, sunsets - don't miss them! The site is perfect - spacious, easy to drive to (we drove a Forester towing a small tent on a trailer), with a shade shelter, picnic table, fire ring, and rain-catchment water source, plus a porta-potty and shower station a 1-minute drive (or 5-minute walk) away. The whole place has 100% privacy, and is 100% gorgeous.
The location is terrific - easy access to Big Bend Ranch State Park, close enough to Presidio to have good cell service (Verizon) if you care to stay tuned in.
Check-in was easy - and if, like us, you realize while you're about 30 minutes out that you didn't write down the gate lock code - you can get back on the HipCamp app in Presidio, which is about ten minutes from the site.
There aren't trash bins at the site (#critters), but one of BBRSP's facilities is about 5 minutes up the road, and you can toss a day's camp trash there. Basically, everything was easy and convenient.
Lauren answered all of our questions right away - we are so grateful she's sharing her family's slice of beautiful SWTX with us.
We'll be back!

Awesome site! We had a wonderful time. It is secluded and quiet with a great view. I know cold showers are not ideal, but it was pretty refreshing after being in the desert sun all day. We highly recommend for other tent campers

Wow! We loved our time at Rio Bravo and can't wait to come back. The road to the site and signage were easy to follow, the Chinati Potty was well located to all 3 sites as well as perfectly clean and stocked with TP. They offer firewood that you can order and pick up on site too. The campsite was well laid out with a covered picnic table, fire ring with a very nice cooking grate, and plenty of space for a couple of tents. Lauren was quick to communicate, booking was eaay, and the location and wide open space were just what we were looking for.
We were the only ones on property during our stay but the other campsites are situated so that you can't see them from the others.

Had an amazing memorial weekend stay at Rio Bravo 2!!
First time to that side of Texas and it is definitely a sight to see. Pictures won’t do any justice. Me and my wife made the drive from the campsite early morning to the national park and all I can say is that it is and absolute must!!
